Eight months after launching, Apple TV+ is still searching for the series that can help it stand out against the throng of streaming services jockeying for viewers’ money and attention. Enter Foundation.
Apple debuted the trailer for the extravagant sci-fi series at its developers conference on June 22. Based on the 1951 book series of the same name by prolific American writer Isaac Asimov, Foundation tells the story of the fall of a vast far-future Galactic Empire. If the trailer looks a bit like HBO’s “Game of Thrones in space,” that is very much intentional.
